Google Maps v9.47 makes Timeline entries more accessible, redesigns the the blue dot menu, and puts a share button where it belongs [APK Download]

Google opted to set loose a small deluge of updates late into Wednesday afternoon. The first we're checking out is the Maps app, which was just promoted to version 9.47. This update doesn't appear to bring any major new features, but it takes a couple of steps to weave the Timeline feature into other parts of the interface and completely redesigns the blue dot menu. We're still looking for changes, so let us know in the comments if you stumble onto anything else.

[Deal Alert] Best Buy offers the Motorola DROID Turbo 2 for just $312, plus a $200 gift card

So here's a pretty crazy deal. Best Buy is selling the Verizon-branded DROID Turbo 2, the Motorola flagship from late 2015, for $312. That's a pretty good deal on its own, even if it comes with a bit of a bummer that it's only available on an installment plan ($12.99 for 24 months). But what's particularly nutty is that Best Buy is throwing in a $200 gift card to the store with each one. That brings the effective price for the phone down to just $112. For a brand new version of a model that's coming up on a year and a half from release, that's hard to beat.

Google Sheets update will add support for rotated text, accounting formatting, mouse input on Android, and more

Google's Docs and associated programs aren't really replacements for full desktop office suites - at least not yet. But little by little, the company keeps adding more and more features to their web and mobile tools. Sheets, the Google equivalent of Microsoft Excel and similar spreadsheet programs, is getting some crucial updates on the web and Android very soon. A big one is support for standard accounting number formatting (available in the Format menu). That's a huge boon for business that rely on Sheets.

T-Mobile's 'LTE-U' program will use unlicensed spectrum for more LTE bandwidth

Everyone wants faster LTE data, and carriers want to give it to them (and protect and expand their subscriber base at the same time). T-Mobile's latest attempt to expand its network is what it's calling "LTE-U" in a new press release. After the FCC certified compatible network hardware from Nokia and Ericsson, T-Mobile announced that it will be rolling out support for the high-frequency network additions in the spring of this year.

Another Play Store UI experiment appears, this time with separated store categories

At this point, I'm convinced everyone has a unique Play Store app layout. Several UI changes are in various stages of testing - including expanded cards on search, a new My Apps screen, a 'Top Features' list, and several others. There's yet another UI change in testing, this time expanding the Play Store categories.

Google's phone prompts for 2-step verification are getting updated to show more info

Back in June of last year, Google introduced two-step verification prompts to mobile devices. This made using two-factor authentication a lot easier, since it formerly required you to enter codes every single time. However, these prompts looked pretty barren and showed little to no information about the device that was requesting access to your Google account. Now, though, Google is updating them to fix that issue.
